Amigos takes one of the best cuisines on the globe – Mexican cuisine – and adds their own Australian touch to bring Melbourne locals food that’s innovative and fresh. One of three outlets around Melbourne, Amigos’ Acland Street branch in St Kilda is open seven days a week for lunch, dinner and drinks, and features plenty of indoor and outdoor seating for big groups, even offering an option for private dining.
Founded way back in 1981, the Amigos family of restaurants have become synonymous with incredible Mexican cuisine in Melbourne. The spacious and comfortable outlet on St Kilda’s Acland Street is a joy to visit, and features vibrant colours and comfortable seating throughout. The restaurant also offers a fabulous selection of beers, liquors, wine and cocktails – and you definitely can’t go wrong with one of the amazing margaritas!
In-the-know diners understand that a good dinner at Amigos on Melbourne’s Acland Street should begin with an order (or two) of corn chips and dips like chilli con queso, guacamole, or pico de gallo. Mains include tasty Mexican options like shredded beef tacos, grilled chicken nachos, porterhouse beef fajitas and chilli con carne burritos. There are numerous meat-free options as well, including spinach and potato enchiladas, vegetable burritos and tacos with frijoles (beans). Dessert means it’s time to chow down on a sizzling brownie with chocolate, Kahlua sauce and vanilla ice cream, or the deliciously rich flan de queso. Don’t forget to book ahead when planning to visit this St Kilda Mexican restaurant!

Third time back at Amigos,one of my favourite restaurants on Acland Street! Staff were very attentive and kind, food excellent as always. Will definitely be back!
Wonderful dining experience from start to finish. Great environment, music, and service. The food was worth every penny and more!! The flavours were true to life...if they could jump off the plate and dance in spectacular muliti-coloured switls of light, this would most certainly have been a sight!! Ordered nachos with chicken and beef to start then a main of seafood burrito, my partner in dine ordered a beef burrito...delicioso!! We also tried the white and red sangrias and my absolute favourite now, mulled wine, perfect on a cool night. Garranteed to warm even your tiny pinky! Thank you Maria Jose and Denise, together with your wonderful bartender and manager, we have left amigos dancing for joy! Tati x
One of the best Mexican restaurants in Melbourne. The food was delicious, staff were friendly & in a fantastic location. We will return for sure.
The staff were funny, polite, amazing. The food was plentiful and well priced, and the lime margarita was possibly one of the most fresh and delish cocktails i have ever had, It was a fantastic night. Great food, great service - how can you go wrong! Thanks guys x
The food was very tasty and the staff were helpful and cheerful. The menu was hard to read and hard to imagine how the dishes would look like, and the dishes were quite small. I wish there were more choices in the medium and large sections. Smaill dishes are very small. Tortillas were quite small.
Food was delicious! We had a show at the Theatre and food was taking a little while, but staff were very accommodating and apologetic. I ended up taking away golf of my meal which was perfect. If we had nowhere to be the wait would have been fine :) food was worth it though!
The food was nice, but was quite over-priced. And while the servers were friendly, the service wasn't great, especially considering there were only two other tables of two dining (they just didn't seem to have much awareness of what was going on). My drink sat on the bar for ten minutes while the servers stood doing nothing/chatting/polishing glasses, and they didn't notice our water glasses were empty.
Bloody Brilliant! You must book! With the place packed to the rafters we had amazing service and sensational food! Prices were very reasonable. We'll be back for sure. Thank you so much it amazing.
Food was very nice and service was great. Definitely recommend this restaurant for those who are looking for a more formal Mexican experience. So if you're looking for fishbowls and sombrero hats, this isn't the place!
